Circus Elephant

from by GypsyFingers



Born out of freedom to a world thats not my own.
My mother roped and shackled -I could see her bones.
I knew this life was full of lies.
The others told me with their eyes.

At first I fought but quickly learnt the sense of pain.
My master beat me, I was weighed down by the shame.
I learnt my duty to perform.
We worked all night and through the dawn.

brightly coloured fabric, shiny jewels stuck to my eyes. The light reflected the crystal tears that I cried.
My circus life is just for you.
Show's over, now what will you do?

I've travelled far and wide, no knowledge have i gained.
Its hard to see that far from my stall where I'm chained.
The trumpet band begins to play.
This is just another day.
